Downtown Boston GAS LEAK TAGGING EVENT

 

December 10th at Noon – We will be gathering with volunteers and supporters from all over Boston at the intersection of Commonwealth Avenue and Arlington Street in the Back Bay to raise awareness about the estimated 220 methane gas leaks in downtown Boston! These leaks have been identified and located by National Grid and are damaging our health, killing our trees, impacting our climate, and raising our utility bills – but they are not required to be fixed under current laws since they are not at risk for exploding. Come help us change this by raising awareness of this issue!

After a brief talk by Mothers Out Front organizers, you will have the opportunity to join with other volunteers to go throughout your neighborhood (either into areas of the Back Bay, Beacon Hill or parts of the South End) to put small signs up near the locations of the leaks to share information about methane gas leaks.

As we are raising awareness, you are welcome to wear an outfit that calls attention to the issue.  Moms are encouraged to wear their Mothers Out Front t-shirts, and capes (super moms).

And you can sign the petition to pass the Boston Gas Leaks Ordinance here!

      I had understood we could tag in Winthrop where our group just started. I will call Betsy and our party facilitators—Muriel Finegold and Sara Snow about this. Carol
